Uk At Home

RRP $59.99

During just one week in September 2007, 50 professional and thousands of amateur photographers created this visual time capsule of life in the UK at the beginning of the 21st century. Also included are essays on home life from leading novelists, historians and essayists.

From castles to stone huts, suburban semis to houseboats, wag mansions to squats and post-modern penthouses to chocolate box cottages UK At Home paints a wide and fascinating picture of the places we call 'home'.

Offering views from every area, social echelon and ethnicity in the UK today this wonderful collection is a visual time capsule of life at the beginning of the 21st century by the people who lived in it.

From 24th-30th September tens of thousands of pictures were submitted to the UK at Home website and since then a team of leading picture editors from some of the UK leading publications have been choosing the very best of both the professional and amateur shots to appear in the book. Also included are essays on UK home-life for each chapter of the book by some of our greatest novelists, essayists and historians.

With over 224 pages of houses, flats, families, possessions, pets, events and atmosphere this is a book that will not only hold up a mirror to the way we live now but offer vivid memories to look back on in later years.

So whether it's a an eco-house in Wales or a Star Trek obsessive in Hinckley or three generations of a family who live next to each other you can see the truth of life in the UK right now in these pages.


Vision And Information Processing For Automation

RRP $796.99

Developments in electronic hardware, particularly microprocessors and solid-state cameras, have resulted in a vast explosion in the range and variety of applications to which intelligent processing may be applied to yield cost-effective automation. Typical examples include automated visual inspection and repetitive assembly. The technology required is recent and specialized, and is thus not widely known. VISION AND INFORMATION PROCESSING FOR AUTOMATION has arisen from a short course given by the authors to introduce potential users to the technology. Its content is a development and extension of material presented in the course. The objective of the book is to introduce readers to modern concepts and techniques basic to intelligent automation, and explain how these are applied to prac­ tical problems. Its emphasis is on machine vision. Intelligent instrumentation is concerned with processing infor­ mation, and an appreciation of the nature of information is essential in configuring instrumentation to handle it effiCiently. An understand­ ing of the fundamental principles of efficient computation and of the way in which machines make decisions is vital for the same reasons. Selection of appropriate sensing (e.g., camera type and configuration), of illumination, of hardware for processing (microchip or parallel processor?) to give most effective information flow, and of the most appropriate processing algorithms is critical in obtaining an optimal solution. Analysis of performance, to demonstrate that requirements have been met, and to identify the causes if they have not, is also important. All of these topics are covered in this volume.
